    Was pleasantly suprised to find Chimay on the menu at Emeril's NOLA in the French Quarter last year. Was even served in the Chimay chalice. Any suggestions for upscale restaurants with decent beer offerings in the area?

    August, Cocquette, Boucherie, Cochon...on the more casual side Irish House, St James Cheese.

    Excellent! We will be here. There are probably a lot of now than the last time you visited the city. I'm in such deep Mardi GRAS prep mode that only the obvious ones came to mind. All are excellent places though and you won't be dispointed in the food at any of those options. All of them are also our customers which is why I know them so well. the actual French quarter has gotten a lot better in terms of beer selection but its still a beer wasteland compared with the rest of the city.

    In the Quarter, I'd add Sylvain. Nice, rotating selection.

    Ancora, Midway, and Company Burger on Freret too. All four are quite good.

    As for Cochon, I only ever find myself ordering Stone IPA there. Them and Luke could stand to step up their beer selection.

    Root and (if you want super high end) Restaurant R'Evolution do a decent job with beer.

    Ah. I was going to say, why bother with the restaurants - just go to The Avenue, but I see that's already been covered. Seriously though...the beer selection there is INSANE. Last time I was in NOLA I had things I'd never even *heard* of at the Avenue while watching Shark Week. What a great night.

    Can't wait for Mardi Gras this year! Was down over Halloween and was at The Pub 3 out of the 5 days I was there! Can't wait to see the events.

    Three Muses usually has a few NOLA offerings, along with Stone and Brooklyn last time I was there. One of my favorite spots on Frenchmen St. Lobster ravioli, duck confit flat bread, Hopitoulas and the Royal Roses playing. That was a good night :)

    I ate at Peche recently and they had a decent little beer list.

    Went to Peche last time I was down. Didn't drink but the food was great and I hear it's one of the up and coming seafood restaurants.
